Dytek Charger

We have a Dytek charger on our 1974 Cal 2-29 that does not appear to be working. Before I just assume that it is no good and replace it, I want to go through and trouble shoot the system.
I am hoping that someone might have a manual on a Dytek charger. I don't know what model of charger it is at the moment as I did not write it down. It does not appear to be even powering up right now so the first thing I want to check is how the 120 volt connections are supposed to be made. Not being familiar with ac wiring on a boat I don't know if it is set up the same as residential or not . I see only two a/c wires going into the charger where I would have expected to find three.
Any information or basic diagrams would be very helpful.
Thanks

Dytek are defunct. Try looking at Ferro-Resonant Chargers in the Charles site.

Thanks again Gord - this is the information I needed to check if the charger is connected properly and if it even works.
